Verbally Committed on October 12, 2017

Norwood should be able to come in and provide an immediate boost to West Virginia’s defensive backfield. Our own Zach Campbell wrote this about Norwood when he committed:

While Norwood is listed at just a shade under 6’0”, his frame and his ability to read/react to plays, especially out of press coverage, will remind some of you of former star corner Daryl Worley. Most scouting/recruiting sites have him listed as a 4.5 guy in terms of straight line speed, but he was documented back during his initial recruitment out of powerhouse Valdosta High (GA) as being a very fluid, very smooth athlete. Sounds as if he has the raw ingredients to be another solid corner in Tony Gibson’s secondary, to me
